Hotel Lirico

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was very nice but I didn't find the beds very comfortable though and there was no fridge or minibar in the room - I had to go downstairs and order things from the bar and even have them store my bottle of water. The hotel breakfast was simple, delicious fare, a typical Italian continental breakfast - DIY panini sandwiches, perfect cappuccinos and espresso - I definitely saved money there so was grateful. The hotel staff was so friendly and kind that it made the experience there truly wonderful. Thank you Hotel Lirico!

For the price, which includes breakfast, you can't do much better; only real minus (as others have already stated) is you have to climb the first flight of stairs because the elevator only starts at the reception floor level; not a problem if you only have carry on, but for those with real luggage, this can be an issue

the hotel was nice, reception was on 1st floor....no elevator (ground is considered 0) there is an elevator to rooms in 2-4 floor.

The Hotel Lirica was clean comfortable. The location was excellent within walking distance to all the sights: Colloseum, Forum, etc. View from our window of the Opera House was very pleasant. Parking for our car was available nearby for 30 Euros a day.

Right next to the Teatro Dell'Opera and only a few minutes walkto Termini train station, this little boutique hotel is a very good value for the money. The location is not very busy, and access to many attractions are nearby. Will definitely stay there again.

My partner and i love this hotel and the staff. It was cleaned and well maintained the entire time we stayed there, which was 12 days. Breakfast was pleasant and worth getting up for. I recommend this to anyone with a moderate to simple budget.

Nice hotel near train station (about 5 - 10 minute walk). Metro was down while we were there, but hotel was about 20 minutes walking from most attractions (Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain...). Reasonably priced and had a nice European style breakfast buffet. Small room, but nice. Air conditioner cooled the room pretty quickly. Biggest complaint was about the shower, it would constantly change temperatures pretty drastically. Would be a normal temperature, then get ice cold and then burning hot. Once you figured out the schedule, though, it was manageable. Helpful staff. Not a lot of authentic Italian in the immediate area, but found that was the case in most areas of Rome. Would recommend staying at this hotel.

This hotel is right next to the opera house. Only 5-6 blocks from the train/bus terminal. You need a map to figure out the streets. In a perfect location to do sight seeing. within walking distance to get on the double decker bus tours or catch a bus to the airport or another location. Plenty of eating places and shops. Quiet enough street at night and not affraid to go out late in that area. Too far to walk to the Vatican-get a double decker bus tour ticket good for 1,2,3, days and hop on and off at the sites that way. Most staff speaks English so they can give advise. One flight of stairs to get to main lobby but elevator to take you to room

Great!!! Clean, safe and close to everything!!!! We will return and stay longer.. thanks. ED.

We recently spent three nights at the Hotel Lirico and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We were a family of three sharing one room, and found the room to be large enough that we weren't on top of one another, clean and comfortable. The hotel staff provided answers to all of our questions and when the hotel tv system went out, they got it working within a short time and even came up to our room to make sure it was working properly. We liked the proximity of the hotel to public transportation and the staff helped us learn how to navigate the city's bus, subway and tram system to get to wherever we needed. We also walked extensively around the neighborhood which we enjoyed.

This hotel is located next to the Opera house about four blocks to the Termini train station. We found that this location is very centrally located and makes it very easy to access the cities metro system. It never seemed very crowded with tourists like other parts of the city and we liked that very much. We checked into the hotel quickly and went up to our room. The room was very nice with a Queen size bed, a couch, and a good size bathroom. The bathroom was larger than we expected and there was plenty of hot water and water pressure was excellent. Our room was on the side of the hotel and we had a wonderful view of the Opera house - this was very unexpected and very nice. The staff at this hotel were friendly and the continental breakfast was excellent. The croissants and baked goods were incredibly good and the breakfast room attendants were friendly and efficient. I would stay here again just for the croissants and pastries -THEY WERE THAT GOOD! As far as cleanliness goes, you couldn't ask for a cleaner hotel. Our room was spotless when we arrived and the hotel cleaning staff kept it that way for our entire stay. The only thing that bugged me was that to use the safe in our room there was an extra charge of 2.50 Euro a day. I thought that was a little tacky. Also, the lobby of the hotel is up a flight of stairs and while that was not a problem for us, it could be for someone with mobility issues or a lot of luggage.

The hotel is just a short walk from the Termini train station, which was wonderful after the impossibly long flight to Rome from Chicago and the 45 minute train ride downtown from the airport. We were exhausted, but were welcomed with open arms by Tony. He showed us a nice spot close by to grab some dinner before crashing for the night. He, and all the other staff members, were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout our 2 week stay. They have a lovely breakfast spread every morning, which was perfect for getting a quick bite before heading out to sightsee. The location is great too. You can get just about anywhere (either on a bus, metro, or walking) within 20 minutes, but aren't overcrowded like some of the more touristy parts of town. A few words of warning, the rooms were a bit on the small side and their version of a double bed is just two twin beds made separately and pushed together. But all in all, I am incredibly happy with out experience at Hotel Lirico.

The staff was really friendly, the breakfast selection was actually pretty good, and the location was excellent. In fact, we were able to walk to all of the big sights from the hotel. (And if you don't like to walk much or are short on time, the hotel is really close to the Termini train station and thus just next to all train, metro, and bus options in the city). Our only complaint was that the pillows were very hard and the showers were a little small. Otherwise, this hotel was GREAT!!

Within walking distance from most major Rome attractions, as well as the train station. The staff here was great. They were very helpful on finding directions to the attractions and dining. As are most European hotels, the rooms are very small, but adequate since most of the time here was to sleep. We would definitely stay here again.

I was disappointed in the breakfast, the coffee was terrible and for Italy that is surprising. The rooms were very very very small. The hotel is also upstairs without an elevator so with luggage it was a challenge.
